Favorable Summary Judgment

Patrick T. O'Connor and Benjamin M. Perkins obtained summary judgment for clients Sergeant Jeb Cowart, Tattnall County Board of Commissioners, and the Tattnall County Sheriff's Office. The Plaintiff contended that Sergeant Cowart assaulted, battered and inflicted personal injury upon him during an arrest. In an order entered on January 8, 2014, Judge Hugh J. McCullough of the State Court of Tattnall County decided the case in favor of the Defendants on immunity grounds. (Civil Action No. 2012V89HM State Court of Tattnall County.)

Summary Judgment Granted

Summary Judgment was granted to Oliver Maner client Deputy Sheriff John Phillips in a suit filed by Stephen and Davis Brownlee on claims of assault, false imprisonment, conspiracy, battery, malicious prosecution, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Plaintiffs sued Deputy Phillips and fellow Chatham County Deputy Sheriff Anthony Davis after the two stopped Davis Brownlee and a companion at the Southbridge Golf Course to inquire as to why they were on the course. Stephen Brownlee arrived on the scene and a physical altercation ensued. Patrick T. O'Connor represented Deputy Phillips. (Civil Action Number STCV1102435CO State Court of Chatham County.)
